I'm not really sure the unemployed thread is the place to be cracking jokes. I know some people appreciate levity in tough situations but as someone who has been laid off more than once through no fault of my own it was nice to get actual support here instead of wisecracks. But maybe that's just me.

True - sorry - though when I lost my job violently, I looked for humor anywhere I could but yes, it's devastating for sure

Back in the job-hunting saddle

I left my Director post due to relocation. We are heading back to the DFW area - and I admit it is not my first choice. In fact, I'm not that thrilled with the moving timing, but Karma/God/Fate decided to gift Hubby with a great job - that he is settling into nicely! - but the location is DFW.

House is on the market, movers are coming soon, and I am on the hunt for a new position.

I'm looking at both public and private sectors, upper level, and I'm not picky about travel requirements at this time.

Any DFW Cyburbians out there - PM me if you're open to meeting for coffee or lunch some day after Memorial weekend. I want to catch up on local projects, opportunities, and gossip!

Same as above

Similar post to poster above me - I'm relocating to Western PA for spousal reasons. My background is in transportation planning. Good luck to all the Cyburbians relocating!

I wish you luck. PA is notorious for incredibly low pay for planners. Definitely keep a look out for associated jobs because being a planner in PA is tough sledding.

Just a suggestion...

In my fair state :mi: it became clear that recreational marijuana was going to be approved. That's when I started seeing the occasional ad for zoning specialists who could obtain permits for dispensaries, grow farms, and other related uses. I went as far as to read some of their websites.

If you could stand to earn some decent money for a likely temporary gig, it might be worth looking into what's happening in your own state. (Don't get me started on the fact that banks, being FDIC, are unable to trade in pot revenue. At least when I worked for each of the cell phone carriers, there were checks, not cash payouts.)

Hope this helps someone.

Returned to say that I appreciate this new software's flexibility. Now I can edit a glaring embarrassing typo which had gone unnoticed for many hours! Thanks Dan!
